WOW!

 

What a great ...

(well I can’t call it a vacation anymore since we’re retired)

why don’t we just say a GREAT time back home in the Islands!!

Were to begin?

My husband suggested that I not overwhelm you all at once. 

So I will just post in small increments. 

 

As I posted earlier, we spent the entire month of May on Oahu Hawaii, my home town.

We flew in on May Day, Lei Day, May first on Hawaiian Airlines, how appropriate, don’t you think?

 

Once we got settled at my husband’s sister’s house, I went straight out to get some goodies…

 

Hawaii May 2012, K~Girl's Food Travel Journal, Day one, mixed Poke Plate of steamed Fish cake or Kamaboko, smoked Salmon Poke, Tako or Octopus Poke and Ahi or Tuna Poke

 

 

 

What we have above is steamed fish cake or Kamaboko

(it’s that pinkish colored stuff at the top of the plate)

Then moving from left to right, smoked Salmon Poke, Tako or Octopus Poke, and the Ahi or Tuna Poke

And yes Virginia, the fish is raw

 

 

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, continued day one, Mussel Poke

 

 

And here we have some Mussel Poke, it wouldn’t fit on the plate…

Mussels are one of my husband's favorites

 

Tako (pronouced the same as taco) or Octopus goes over pretty well too!

 

 

 

Edit: I don’t think that I have all of my faculties as yet…

Miss KK, it’s all about taste, right?

I just mix together a few tablespoons of Soy Sauce, a few teaspoons of Sesame oil, some rough chopped green onions and sweet white onions, some red pepper flakes for some heat and a sprinkle of sesame seeds

So,

 

The next morning, of course we woke up very early (530AM). 

Both my husband and myself were so excited to get to the BEACH!!!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, this is Ko Olina, lagoon #2, I think, there are four man-made lagoons in total...

 

 

ONE of our favorite beaches is at Ko Olina (above), where there are four different man-made “lagoons”. 

I packed up some sandwiches real quick like and we were off for the day.

We kinda got a little sunburned, so we took a day off the following day and headed over the

“Windward side” of the Island, KANEOHE!! 

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, this is a panoramic shot of Kailua beach that got cut off towards the end, because the it was so windy that day, it didn;t work right ...

 

 

(not all of this panoramic shot came out because it was so windy that day at Kailua Beach)

Actually, our first stop after going over the H-3 was to Kin Wah Chinese Restaurant in Kaneohe.

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, crispy Gau Gee from Kin Wah in Kaneohe

 

Hawaii May 2012, crispy gau gee

 

 

Where we got crispy Gau Gee (above) which is a won ton wrapped filled with a minced pork mixture and deep fried

 

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Coconut Gin Doi from Kin Wah in Kaneohe

 

Hawaii May 2012, coconut gin doi

 

 

And Coconut Gin Doi, a deep fried fritter like of mochi or rice flour dough and coconut in the center

edit: oops, I spelled it wrong, it's Jin Doi ...

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Almond Cookie from Kin Wah Chinese Restaurant in Kaneohe

 

 

As if that weren’t enough, we topped is all off with Almond Cookies

 

These would all be considered Dim Sum, which is eaten at I guess you would say brunch time

 

While in Kailua, we headed over to the spanking new Whole Foods Market and took a look around

 

Hawaii May 2012, Whole Foods Market in Kailua Hawaii

 

Hawaii May 2012, Whole Foods in Kailua Hawaii

 

Hawaii May 2012, Whole Foods Market in Kailua Hawaii had some amazing fish!!

 

Hawaii May 2012, super fresh fish!

 

 

Wait a minute, you need some beer with that fish!!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, I thought that Primo Beer was no longer...

Aloha My Sista' Joey!!

Thank you so much for that very warm welcome back, and yes,

it's been an adjustment from the tropics to the desert...

Needless to say, my husband was looking for a condo to purchase! 

The prices, Oh My Gosh!! 

He wasn't believing me that food was SO expensive, that I took my camera

everywhere I went to show him.

And about that place with the mussels,

I think we went there with a great couple that we met recently...

 

 

Edit:

I forgot, Joey, I must have had Spam five different ways!  LOVE IT!!

As not to put you all into Hawaii-overload, I thought I’d break up the days adventure…

From Kailua, we drove around what is lovingly called “the horn” or the blow hole way back to town, where we were staying at my sister-in-laws home.  This is a great body surfing spot, but you need to be REALLY good in the water.  The current here is treacherous.  Not to mention that shore break, you could easily get hurt.

 

Hawaii May 2012, Makapuu Point on Oahu Hawaii

 

 

I forgot dinner …

We went to ZIPPY’S!!

Love the fried chicken with their chili.  We didn’t get any Mac Salad,

because now I know how to MAKE MY OWN!!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Zippy's Fried Chicken, I don't know what makes it so good, it just is!

 

Hawaii May 2012, chicken and chili, YUM!!

 

We did take out and I made us a fresh pot of rice and a salad with Japanese cucumbers (I told you about those before).

 

Hawaii May 2012, these are Japanese cucumbers that were developed by the University of Hawaii

 

 

I had some forthought that same evening.  I knew that we’d be at the beach most of the following day, so I put some chicken thighs to marinade.  The longer the better, right?

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, I don't have to make my own Korean Marinade in Hawaii, just go to any market and grab a premade bottle

 

 

Love this stuff!  I can not find this anywhere on the Mainalnd.  So it’ll be Korean BBQ tomorrow. 

But where is the grill?

I searched high and low, in and out, up one side and down the other, no grill. 

WHAT?!  Yup, my brother-in-law doesn’t grill anymore.

So I had to us the broiler oven.  I haven’t done that since my early 20’s when I first moved out and got my own apartment.  Well, we’ll just have to make do.  I wasn’t going to buy a new grill if it was only going to get used for 4 weeks.

Safeway here in NorCal carries Wonnie's. No grill, no worries. Just saute for little caramelization and finish in oven; or buy a grill pan.

I have never actually used Wonnie's, I just remember seeing it in the store. Whenever I go the store I am like a kid in a candy store, wandering up and down the aisles looking at all the baubles, shiny labels, and toys. LOL, my wife won't go with any more because I take too long.

 

When I get home from work I will post the recipe that I use as a Korean marinade. Don't know if it is close to Wonnie's, but being nosy and on your recommendation, I will probably have to buy a bottle now.

Okay

 

This is the part I have been waiting to share with you all

 

Hawaiian Food, and not just any old kind my friends

Not that nasty stuff they serve at the commercial Luaus

I'm talking about the true-blue thing

 

Young's Fish Market on Kalani street in Kalihi

 

Hawaii May 2012, Young's Fish Market on Kalani street in Kalihi Oahu Hawaii in a strip mall...

 

I would love for you all to read the back story to this joint. 

http://youngsfishmarket.com/

They use to be in a different location on Liliha street. 

Both my husband and I have been eating at Young's for many years. 

I can't remember when they moved, but I do recall the first time we went home, we had a heck of a time finding them.

But...

LET'S EAT!!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, combo plate, mini kalua pig plate, side squid luau and opihi which is a limpet

 

We go for the family-style of eating alot of times and this is one of them.  That way when you share, you can have a taste of everything

I could have ordered more, but we're here for a month, pace yourself Braddah & Sista' !!!

 

Above, working clock-wise from 12 o'clock we have Opihi; Combo plate; Squid Luau; Mini Kalua Pig plate

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, a real delicacy, Opihi, pronouced Oh-pee-he, these are limpets and yes, they are raw

 

 

the little container above are the Opihi, prononced oh-pee-he, which are a limpet and yes, they are RAW

these are a delicacy

the are found on the shore break reefs or rocks and are extremely dangerous to collect making them VERY EXPENSIVE!

... and a little does go a long way

 

 

Hawaii May, Pork Laulau, think Hawaiian style Burrito made of Taro leaves stuffed with roast Pork and Butter Fish

 

 

 

My husband's Laulau, think Hawaiian Burrito made of Taro leaves stuffed with roast Pork and Butter Fish, then steam the bundles, YUM!!!

He said that these are the best he's ever eaten and he's Italian!!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Okinawan Sweet Potato

 

 

Above is Okinawan Sweet Potato, and you can kind of see the Pipikaula under it.  The potato is so not like what you think of...

Pipikaula is like jerky, but not as dry and stringy and tough

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Squid Luau is taro leaves cooked in coconut milk and then tender diced Squid is added

 

 

 

Oh My Gosh!!  Can I tell that I hade been SO waiting for this!?  Squid Luau

Take Taro leaves and cook them in coconut milk and then add super tender diced Squid to the party

I ate it all by myself!!  (did you hear my stomach growl?)

 

Hawaii May 2012, POI, and no, it's not library paste

 

Poi with a sprinkle of Hawaiian Sea Salt, and no, it's not library paste

... and yeah, my husband doesn't care for it, but he's not Hawaiian, I AM!!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, the perfect bite, poi & opihi

 

Above is what I would say is the perfect bite

a spoon full of Poi & an Opihi

I don't dare tell my younger sister where we went, she'd be REALLY upset

 

 

I Need A NAP!!!

This was a late lunch, we had a very small breakfast of cold cereal and juice. 

Did you figure out yet that we did not bother with any supper?

I could hardly move! 

I can honestly say that I had never been so stuffed in my entire life, but MAN!!!  It was worth it.

Grocery shopping in Hawaii was quite painful for me.

Having been away for almost five years now, I was simply flabbergasted!

My husband didn’t believe me, so I started taking my trusted digital camera

with me where ever I went from now on during this trip.

 

So let’s go shopping together …

 

Hawaii May 2012, produce at the supermarket in Honolulu, can you believe this?

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, things that make you say, ARG!!

 

We’ll start in the produce department

I got a little ill and had to move on

I didn’t buy any fruits that day, just on sheer principle

 

Hawaii May 2012, that's not even real cheese!! and want how much?

 

Let’s move over to the chilled case … Kraft cheese singles, OMG!!

 

Hawaii May 2012, roast peppers, we have an afternoon snack alot of times with some salami ... not this month!

 

So what shall we have for our “big Sunday Breakfast”?

In Arizona we have a nice brunch basicly, every Sunday

Bacon is how much?  And eggs? 

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

How about an alternative breakfast meat?

(as an aside note, I just bought this yesterday back here in Arizona for $0.44 per can)

In Hawaii, we love our Vienna Sausages and eggs, but a dozen eggs were over $4!!

 

Hawaii May 2012, we have jarred peppers and salami for a snack, but not in Hawaii!!

 

Well, maybe our Sunday afternoon snack would be more reasonable of roasted peppers and salami…

DON’T THINK SO!!

 

Hawaii May 2012, canned soup?

 

Do you think a cup of soup would be more economical?

 

Hawaii May 2012, I buy this brand back in Arizona but not for this much

 

Or should I make so soup instead?

 

I spent $127, walked away with four, count them four plastic grocery bags

and none of the above was in them.  And that was only within the first couple of days of being here!!

I haven’t sat down to total up our grocery bill yet, I’m afraid to frankly.

This entire post is dedicated to Durangojo …

 

Hawaii May 2012, mini spam musubi at genki sushi in kaneohe hawaii

 

SPAM!!

We went over to Kaneohe,to one of our regular spots, Genki Sushi

What was there but Mini Spam Musubi, I just had to try it!!

 

Hawaii May 2012, wnet to an "eat the street" food truck event and what did i find? fried musubi!!

I missed counted …

 

Hawaii May 2012, from our fav, Zippy's, I forget if this is the Zip Pac or Surf Pac, either way, it has SPAM!!

 

It was really six different ways …

Hawaii May 2012, this is from the gas station!!

 

Can you believe this is from the gas station on the way to the beach?

I was feeling a little peckish..

 

Hawaii May 2012, fried saimin or what they now call fried noodles from zippy's!!

 

Above is Fried Saimin, and I did not know that my husband had never eaten this dish before.  I bought a mini plate for the beach and he ate most of it.  It’s loaded with goodies like SPAM, Kamaboko and Char Siu, ONO!!

 

Hawaii May 2012, ONO! Fried rice, eggs and SPAM!!

 

Finally, we ate in the full service portion of Zippy's Restaraunt on an early morning call,

Fried Rice, eggs and SPAM!!

 

Once we got back home, the first breakfast that I made for us was SPAM!!!

Enjoy!

 

(and no, I have no affiliation with any of the above mentioned companies)

kgirl,

sorry for the delayed reply. i just had 21 dirt pimps(realtors) tromp throughout my house as part of a tour. who looks at houses at 8 am? they are more invasive than dentists and quite nosey little buggers...aargh...so as to your spam.....sorry, no spamgasms for this girl despite your photos.  if i was invited to your house for dinner and you served a spam 'delicacy' i would not insult you or your efforts or bring attention to my self by not eating it. uncorking another bottle might help though...won't hurt for sure.  there are only a few foods that i won't eat and nothing that i won't try a few times(to give it a fair shake), but when it comes to spam and tapioca i just can't get them past my childhood. there are some things you just never shake off or grow out of. what can i say? blame the nuns! glad you enjoyed yours however. great pics by the way...what kind of camera did you use? your photos are so crystal clear. thank you again kgirl for taking the time and effort it takes to share with us all. it does not go unappreciated.

joey

p.s. i got your package yestserday and i must tell you that i was more than just a little apprehensive opening it as i thought perhaps it was a can of spam! thank you...it's lovely....so glad it wasn't spam though!

hmmm....spam candles..now there's a thought.....or not!
